The H range pre-date the S range and thus are somewhat less common. The various model numbers will be catalogued as they become available, but the range does appear to have common characteristics worth noting:
- The model number is normally found around the base of the pen, but this can include anywhere so far up as to be level will the bottom of the lever.
- The barrel Stamp consistently bears the name "SUMMIT" below which is the word "Velvet tip" on mottled pens, or "Unbreakable" on plastic pens.
- The furnishings appear to fall into one of two patterns :
A riveted "Curzons" clip with a straight, unmarked, lever.
A non-riveted clip and lollypop level both bearing the CL logo or "Curzons"
The evidence currently available would suggest that the H Range was introduced in the late 1920's and was superseded by the earliest of the S range by the mid 1930's. A number of the earlier S models seem to be their H number equivalent, merely having the prefix updated.
Until these models are given sections of their own, here is information on some additional models:
The lowest model number i have come across to date. The H.55 is 5 1/4" in length, has the 'curzon' marked lollipop lever, and comes with a warranted 14ct nib. I suspect that the accommodation clip is not original to the pen.
A blacked chased lever filler measuring in at 5 1/2". The lever is the lollipop type, sporting the word "CURZONS" and the nib is the "Warranted 14 ct" type.
The only example
I currently have did not come with a pocket clip. However this model was also
the basis for Lang manufactured "THE WHITEHALL PEN" , which does come
with a fixed pocket clip.

Measuring exactly the same length and girth as
the H.60 above, the main difference, in addition to the metal furnishing, is
